Two water tenders and bulldozers from Green Diamond are also fighting the fire, he said. Rain falling through Tuesday night and Wednesday was helpful, Archambeault said, but also created wet, muddy conditions for fire crews. "The rain has slowed things down, but the fires are not out," Archam- beault said. The DNR has also requested eight 20-person fire crews, personnel to help coordinate crews efforts and five helicopters to drop water on the fire. "The main concern though is that there are many, many fires burning in Oregon and Washington, and even though we request those resources, we may be far down the list," Archam- beault said. The DNR has two more Type II Incident Response Team crews ready to fight any fires that might arise in the western half of Mason County, he said. U.S. Highway 101 was closed for four hours Monday after smoke from a fire north of Dayton Airport Road drifted across the highway, McDowell said. The DNR expanded its statewide burn ban to include all outdoor burn- ingon DNR-protected land this week. All burning, including recreational campfires, has been banned in Mason County and the city of Shelton. Further complicating matters, the National Weather Service issued a red flag warning for Western Wash- ington, advising residents of a threat of thunderstorms. "Lightning in dry fuels can cause multiple fire starts. Given the recent stretch of hot and dry conditions, any fires that develop could spread rapid- ly," according to the National Weath- er Service warning. continued from page A-1 Dan Griffey (R-Allyn) remains in second place with 29.8 percent in Ma- son County and 29.39 percent in the district.

Sinatra was the program's star. "He was fantastic, a really nice guy," Kellogg said. "You just heard stories from people who didn't like him." Kellogg said she was never nervous singing -- until it came time to share a microphone with Sinatra. "The first time we had a duet, I was a panic case ... He was my idol," she said. But a fan working on biographies of singers from that era recently shared a recording of one of their du- ets -- and it was Sinatra who made a mistake, Kellogg said. "He didn't come in when he was supposed to come in," she said with a laugh. Kellogg said she attended a few parties hosted by. Sinatra. "Everybody who was there was wealthy, and lived in Beverly Hills and had servants," she recalled. Kellogg stayed with the program when "Your Hit Parade" went from radio to TV. She recorded the show in New York City, and then flew back to California each weekend to be with her husband. He eventually joined her in New York. Kellogg began providing the sing- ing voice for screen actresses in 1947. She dubbed the vocals for Gardner for three films in consecutive years: "The Hucksters," "One Touch of Venus" and "The Bribe." She did the singing for Cyd Charisse in "Word and Mu- sic" in 1948, and for Sherree North in "The Best Things in Life Are Free" in 1956 and "Mardi Gras" in 1958. After being handed a list of her recording credits, Kellogg peered at the names of the movies and shook her head. "I don't remember half of these!" Kellogg also sang to live audiences. She remembers one night performing at a Florida hotel when her friend Gardner showed up with a date: bil- lionaire Howard Hughes. The eccen- tric tycoon's feet were on the table during their introduction, she re- members. Meantime, Kellogg's husband was making a living as an actor on "The Only 76K miles 116K, 5 speed ..... 3 Row Seating, 4x4 AT, Clean, clean car Runs q '05 PT Cruiser '03 VW Passat '96 Dodge Ram 2500 Silver, 4 Cylinder Blue, 6 Cylinder V-lO, AT, 86K Miles, 4x4 5 Speed Low Miles & Ready to Tow Financing available WarranUel available Safety Inspection on Approval of Credit on all vehides on all veldde= 23270 NE State Rt. 3 * Belfair, WA 98528 (360) 275-2257 www.BelfairSelfStorage.com 360-277,3028 Next to Shell, 23791 Hwy, 3 Bellair Vin ~ posted at dealership See Bob, Jackie or Mar~ Courtesy of Eileen Kellogg Eileen Kellogg was featured in an advertisement for Lucky Strikes cigarettes, which sponsored her TV show "Your Hit Parade" from 1950 to 1952. "I've never smoked," said Kellogg, a Fawn Lake resident who exercises every day. Red Skelton Show." "We didn't want any children," Kellogg said. "I was starting my ca- reer, he was starting his career." Kellogg made her last soundtrack recording in 1966 in the Elvis Pres- ley film "Frankie and Johnny." She provided the singing voice for Donna Douglas (Ellie May Clampett on the television show "The Beverly Hillbil- lies") on three tunes: "Frankie and Johnny," "Look Out Broadway" and "Petunia the Gardener's Daughter." Looking for a change of pace, the Kelloggs moved to Germany for two years to teach English-speaking stu- dents, many from U.S. military bas- es. On weekends, Kellogg sang with a jazz band. When they returned to the United States, the couple decided to escape the Southern California heat and move north to Washington. "It is the most beautiful state," Kellogg said. The couple moved to Fawn Lake in 1980. Ray died the following year. Five days a week, Kellogg meets her friends at the Shelton Athletic Club. She pedals 2 to 4 miles on a sta- tionary bike. "I want to keep my legs going ... We talk more than we exercise," she said. Kellogg sings to the oldies on the Lacey radio station 680-AM, drum- ming on the steering wheel as she drives. "Some of the songs are before my time, but the beat is great," she said. Kellogg said she believes her loud singing is the reason for the sign at the gate at Fawn Lake that asks driv- ers to turn down their music. .
